that the use of chemical weapons, the use of these banned weapons by this regime is something that the obama administration absolutely must react to. again, i don't think the obama administration is interested in leading the american people into a long-term war, nor does anyone in the obama administration really believe that airstrikes will somehow embolden or sustain the opposition, the rebel sources such that they could somehow march on damascus and throw assad out. so i think we are looking at something that's probably more limited and probably more punitive in nature. >> what about the divisions in the administration? the head of the joint chiefs, general martin dempsey has been very wary about getting involved in syria. today, he was in jordan, which is one place where american planes may stage, if there is any kind of american strikes, they may be flying from jordan. on the other hand, we have secretary of state, john kerry. we heard him earlier. chris talked about the words he was using for force. let's listen to more of what he had to say >> president obama has been in close touch wi

warned the president not to strike against syria without congressional authorization. president obama made it clear there would be no boots on the ground, and he said he has not made a final decision yet. and just a couple hours before the president spoke secretary john kerry went so far as to call the syrian president a thug and, and the world had a moral obligation to punish syria for using chemical weapons. there are more disturbing weapons coming out of syria. there was an attack in northwest syria. the bomb may have contained napon or similar substance that sticks to skin and causes severe burns. consider this is next. >> the action or inaction in syria. the death toll for the recent gas attack has risen, giving more fuel to those who want to attack the country. but who will get help and who will get hurt if america intervenes? and more than a million syrian children most under 11 are now refugees. the major humanitarian crisis, and what's next. >>> plus california losing money from the movie industry. and google and the world brain. the internet giant plants to put every book in

. >> president obama canceled a meeting with vladimir putin. how do we move ahead. how diplomatically can there be movement with russia and iran where the relationships seem to be so frouth with problems? >> well, obviously we haven't found the key to unlock that particular door. we have a deputy secretary of state who is an expert on the arab world and on russia. he has served with distinction in both places. he has dealt with the russians, secretary kerry has reached out to them, but as was pointed out, they have important interests in syria. but it goes beyond that. i think there's a national pride, if you will, and putin's sense of himself and russia's destiny. he felt that yeltsin -- allowed russia to be humiliated in bosnia and kosovo, and he had been snookered in libya, and they are just very dug in. nevertheless i agree with chris hill that we can't just give us and quit trying, and i'm a bit skeptical about that number of 60,000 russians in syria. >> the russians themselves have reported that number. >> chris you were involved in bosnia actively. and their air strikes ended up wo
